Renault Grand Scenic
The 2016 Geneva Motor Show saw Renault take the wraps off the All-New Scénic, a striking, compact MPV with pioneering proportions and, in an unprecedented move, 20-inch wheels as the standard fitment across the range. It is now the turn of the new Grand Scénic to break cover and extend the Scénic line-up.
The All-New Grand Scénic, a family vehicle par excellence, comes with either five or seven seats and features a fresh approach in term of its design, including:
- Chrome or Metal Grey accessories, sculpted forms and body sides, and a distinctive belt line towards the rear which combine to produce a fluid, elegant silhouette.
- For the first time in the segment, 20-inch wheels are standard, while a two-tone livery and harmonious interior trim underline the model's modern personality.
Cabin modularity and travelling comfort - which are two strengths that have helped to forge the Scénic's reputation - have been thought through to ensure that the needs of families are met even more closely. A One Touch Folding Seat function allows the rear seats to be folded automatically to obtain a flat floor and facilitate loading. Meanwhile, the new Grand Scénic is 24cm longer than the new Scénic and consequently boasts extra boot space and carrying capacity compared with its sibling: 718dm3 VDA (five-seat version) for an extra 222dm3 VDA compared with the new Scénic.
The new Grand Scénic comes with a comprehensive suite of driver aids too, including Active Emergency Braking (AEBS) with Pedestrian Detection as standard equipment for the first time in the segment. The list continues with technologies from the next segment up, such as Multisense experience, a R-Link 2 multimedia tablet complete with a large 8.7-inch display and a full-colour head-up display. Last but by no means least, the fourth generation of the model can be specified with Renault's Hybrid Assist electrified diesel engine.
Renault Clio RS16 Concept
To celebrate its fortieth anniversary, Renault Sport is proud to unveil the concept car, Clio RS16. In under five months, teams from Renault Sport have worked to bring to life a somewhat crazy idea, which involved putting a 275bhp, 2.0-litre turbo engine developing 360Nm of torque under the bonnet of a Clio R.S.
To fully exploit the potential of this powerful engine, derived from Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy-R, Clio RS16 comes with chassis and suspension systems featuring solutions developed for racing. Boasting 19-inch wheels and a 60mm wider bodywork, its aggressive design only serves to confirm its purpose: become Renault Sport's most powerful road car.
Sharing its name and colour scheme with the RS16 single-seater, Clio RS16 celebrates Renault's return as a Formula 1 constructor. On Friday, 27 May 2016, Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Kevin Magnussen treated fans and onlookers to the first public outing of Clio RS16 at the legendary Monaco Grand Prix.
Where it all started
The idea that led to the creation of Clio RS16 took shape one evening in October 2015, during a brainstorming session organised at the head office of Renault Sport Cars. Managing Director Patrice Ratti met with the inner circle of his team to try and come up with new projects, especially in order to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Renault Sport.
During discussions, engineer Christophe Chapelain asserted that a Clio chassis would be perfectly able to handle the performance levels of a 300bhp engine, based on his experience in rallying. One thing led to another and the idea of a Clio R.S. with exceptional performance gained ground.
Renault revealed the new Renault Koleos at the 2016 Beijing International Automobile Exhibition, the newest addition to its global portfolio.
The new Koleos delivers all that is expected of a D-segment SUV:
- Powerful, muscular exterior lines,
- Unparalleled four-wheel drive technology,
- Real all-terrain ability thanks to ground clearance of 213mm.
And hallmarks Renault's know how:
- A refined, comfortable interior with seats including technology and design amongst the very best in its category,
- Class-leading cabin space, including 289mm of rear knee room,
- Equipment shared with other high-end Renault models, like the R-LINK 2 multimedia tablet.
The new Koleos delivers a blend of robust SUV cues and the refinement and features associated with large saloon cars.
In addition to a package that positions the new Koleos as the reference of its class in terms of comfort and refinement, it completes Renault's high-end range that now includes a crossover (Espace), a large saloon car (Talisman) and its estate variant (Talisman Estate), plus an SUV (new Koleos).
Conceived and meticulously thought through to meet the demands of exacting customers on every continent, the new Koleos is destined for a global audience, with sales beginning in the third quarter of 2016 in Australia, Turkey, the Gulf states and some Latin American countries, followed by China at the end of 2016, then Russia and Europe at the beginning of 2017. For Renault, the new Koleos comes at a time when SUVs are enjoying strong growth in many markets, and for many consumers, this will be their first opportunity to experience Renault in their segment of choice.
